Ancient Drumming

Itā€™s no wonder that allĀ ancient culturesĀ used drums when they needed to signify something important ā€” drums were used in sacred rites and military actions, and also as a way to transmit information. War, public communications, weddings, funerals, religious rituals, and even dances ā€” all take place to the beating of the drum.Ā Even in ancient myths, a magical rhythm rules the world ā€“ it was rhythm that forged our world order from chaos, creating the familiar structure of reality.That is why in manyĀ ancient cultures, the rituals marking the new year are set to a drum rhythm that is often beat by the whole tribe, helping revitalize the world order and start anew.
